What brand is the tank? Foster& Smith carry glass canopies. Pet Solutions also carry canopies. Between the two companies they cover most brands of tanks! You can find F&S, and Pet Solutions on line, or send for a catalog.

Dr foster and smith has a ton. Both Perfecto for Marineland tanks and Versa tops for Aqueon. If they arrive broken, new ones are shipped out without question highly recommend them

I tried foster&smith but they don't have any glass tops for 37 gal bow fronts only those black plastic ones that I'm trying to get away from in first place
Think I may go to glass shop and have them cut me out one on tues after weekends over
think they also polish the edges so no one gets cut

Maybe your LFS can order you one if they handle the brand of your tank.

Are you sure it's not a 36 gal bowfront? Looking at a list of all Aqueon's bowfronts on their website, there is no 37 gal listed, but there is a 36 gal, and versa-tops for it are available on ebay.

I was thinking the same thing, but never know with tank manufacturers

I have a 36 gallon bowfront, my lfs ordered the top for me. I can't remember how much I paid but I do know I was surprised at how cheap it ended up being.

yes it"s a 37 gal still have paper that was glued to the front glass
it's about a inch taller than the 36 so I guess a top from a 36 would work , but still can't find any with the cut glass for the bow
Figures I would find the odd ball
if I didn't decide to change out lighting I wouldn't be having this problem , but like everything if there's no challenge it's no fun
